Ring in the Chinese New Year with this adaptation of Laurence Yep's Newbery Award-winning book, Dragonwings. When eight-year-old Moonshadow leaves his home in China to begin life with his father in San Francisco's Chinatown, he learns about struggle, determination, prejudice, kindness, and the importance of following your heart.
